Healing Ancestral Wounds through Birth and choosing Life after Miscarriage
Today on The Natural Birth Podcast we have Joanna Joanna is a mum of 3, 2 living children and a baby who left already in the first trimester. She’s originally from Poland but now lives in the UK. She works as a project manager for a building control company, however she has now trained to be an NLP and Hypnobirthing coach.. Joanna had her first daughter 10 years ago in a medicalized birth she describes as traumatic. In this episode we talk about the healing journey she took after that birth which went farther than her own traumatic birth and ended up reaching far back into her ancestral linage and beyond. When she was finally ready to get pregnant again after 8 years she ended up having a miscarriage that spiraled her into a deep depression before she had her turning point and decided to live and be happy. That’s when her and her partner decided to try again and finally fell pregnant to her baby girl that she birthed just 3 weeks ago. This baby was born at home, in water, while Joannas 10 year old daughter was watching. Throughout Joannas story, the healing of the feminine is a red thread. From the healing of her matriarchal linage, to gifting her daughter the gift of both witnessing a miscarriage and understanding that death too is part of life and then witnessing her mother in her sovereign power birthing her baby sister.

Early Pregnancy Loss. A natural and heartbreaking part of being the keeper of a womb.
Trigger Warning: Early Pregnancy Loss Today on The Natural Birth Podcast we have a different kind of birth story. Today me and the beautiful Amy that I will soon introduce will talk about early miscarriage. Miscarriage is more common than we think. And even though it is rapidly changing the way we as women relate to our bodies, our monthly bleed, our sexuality, pregnancy and birth, we rarely talk openly about miscarriage and especially not the early miscarriages. About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. But the actual number is likely much higher because many miscarriages occur so early in pregnancy that women might not even realize she was pregnant to begin with. They may just think they are having a heavy period. If this happens to you, you might have cramping, heavier bleeding than normal, pain in the tummy, pelvis or back, and feel weak. I believe that in order to fully reclaim our power and sovereignty as women we need to reclaim our bleed, the cycles we flow through and to speak openly and honestly about all the facets of being the custodian of a womb. So I was very honored by Amy reaching out about wanting to bring her early miscarriage and the wisdom and deep healing she gained through this most natural experience of many women lives and journey to become a parent. Amy is a Dancer, Spiritual Director, and Ordained Christian Minister from Missouri, USA. She teaches others to unlock the wisdom of their bodies through movement, storytelling, and music. And today, through her vulnerable and generous share we get to talk in-depth about the experience of early miscarriage. Curious about Amy?

Dream Home Birth after Healing Birth Trauma
Today we have Amanda Amanda is a mum of 2 from Sweden and she is a MindBody therapist and spiritual coach. I had the honor of assisting Amanda in her healing of her birth trauma from her first birth, in the lead up to her second birth, through one on one birth trauma healing and debriefing session. It’s important to understand why things unfold as they do and to allow yourself to fully meet all the sensations and emotions trapped within that memory in your body, mind and soul to fully be able to let it go. And its even more important to deal with fears and previous traumas before your next birth so that you don’t end up bringing it in to your birth space. If you feel like you would like some loving space held for you as you work through previous birth trauma then reach out to me at email@example.com or find more info in the show notes. I am so pleased that Amanda was able to work through her birth trauma and the fears coming up before her birth and that she ended up having a wonderful home birth for her second.
